WWE Champion Kofi Kingston has said his current feud with Dolph Ziggler shares similarities with the epic rivalry between Shawn Michaels and Bret 'Hitman' Hart.
Kingston, who won the title at WrestleMania 35 spoke with Gamespot and spoke about how the two have remained competitive throughout the years.
He said: "Honestly, Dolph is one of my favorite opponents, and I almost forgot how much I enjoyed competing against him."
During their early career, the two feuded over both the Intercontinental and United States title, before moving on to the WWE Championship now.
Kofi said the pair's long-time rivalry was similar to Hart and Michaels, who both got over with crowds due to their talent.
"Back in the day, you had Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart going at it for the Intercontinental Championship, and then years, later they were doing the same thing for the WWE title as well," Kingston said.
"Not to put ourselves on the same level as those legends, but that's really the way I like to think about it is, we were guys who were underrated, undersized, underappreciated, underused, undervalued, and somehow, someway we've been able to stay at it and for the past decade, and still be at the top of the game."
The duo will face off this Sunday at WWE Stomping Grounds for the title, this time in a Steel Cage.
